Understanding Vowels & Consonants for Linking

To understand linking, it is important to know the difference between vowel sounds and consonant sounds. Here is a table of English vowels and consonants:

vowelsa e i o u 
consonants bcd fgh jklmn pqrst vwxyz

The table shows the letters that are vowels and consonants. But the important thing in linking is the sound, not the letter. Often the letter and the sound are the same, but not always.

For example, the word "pay" ends with:

  • the consonant letter "y"
  • the vowel sound "a"

Here are some more examples:

 thoughknow
ends with the letterhw
ends with the soundoo
 
 uniformhonest
begins with the letteruh
begins with the soundyo
